    “…current climate models might be overestimating…”
    “…Patrick Brown, a doctoral student at Duke University’s ”
    “…But this could change.”
    Ah yes the debate is over….unless it’s not..great article, clear as mud. Computer models might be wrong unless they are right…thanks !

    There’s a lot to discuss about your remarks. But it is hard to fathom how the universe got here — in 13.76 billion years (give or take a million or two) — without an Intelligence behind it. Too little time for mere accident or OOPS chance!

    Because one can’t “fathom” how we all got here doesn’t require the invention of a designer. ” I don’t know” is the correct answer to exactly how we got here. The scientist looks at the known, holes and unknowns, and says it appears….but stay tuned. The fundamentalist will fill the holes with God and says science is trying to disprove God.
    Odd times…the Bible also states the Sun circles the Earth…science disproves a Bible verse…and there may very well maybe a God regardless of how wrong the Bible maybe..

    Maybe if we could locate and correct the liberal gene and the “gime” gene.

    gimie a cure for my childs autism, cancer, blindness,deafness…shut up and stop playing God….but “gimie” a cure for liberals ?…ah yes…how about cure for stupidity and fear of the unknown..liberal conservative ! Both seem to suffer its ills.

    I can only assume you and your family shun modern medicine, travel, communication right? Oh wait, you’re on the net. Home of vast quantiles of information, entertainment, the Bible..and Russian babes who want to meet YOU ! ..and yet here you are. Why not edit out the fat gene IF that led to diabetes prevention? Didn’t know there was a “gay” gene and ugly /pretty is in the eye of the beholder…a blind baby is for all to see…imagine it could have been prevented by this procedure ! Don’t do something because somebody else may abuse that same action/process ? How many people died while surgeons figured who to remove a malignant tumor ? I bet a few graveyards worth…but your kid will live and thrive based on the knowledge/procedure learned. The thousands of men and women who spend their entire adult lives trying to cure illness and improve quality of life are not little Dr. Mengales…

    @theninthplanet

    ALL medical/research process must at some point experiment on humans, adult or embryonic.
    After all the mice and rats have been killed and cured, the impurities removed etc etc. You start on people. Don’t assume those doing the work are less moral than you…or more. This research is not needed to “euthanize all the ill, lazy and sad people” ..we can do that right now..and yet we don’t.

    Hitler would have been in favor of the blond, blue eyed genes. There are pros & cons to this kind of research but for me, it’s just a little too much like playing God.

    ..and if he wanted us to fly, cure cancer, breathe under water, transfuse blood, correct cataracts, cool a warm home with AC, go faster than we or our horse can run…ah yes the list list of things we do “playing God”…or us using our God given talents….if it leads to a diabetes cure we’ll be sure to with hold it from your grandkids. Fear of the unknown…the cons to curing illness are ????? it could also be used in ways not intended…like everything else..Ok..please continue within ethical standards . The horrors of chemo and radiation in the beginning led to the fantastic cures rates we see now…

    So if they can alter, manipulate the cells and the down syndrome, CF, leukemia is removed…THAT is bad because? The potential abuses need not be listed. Anything can be abused regardless of the good. Certainly a direction to thread lightly but also not be stopped.

    jim s think that the Jewish people just up and left Judea…
    …mrs. obama* would be so proud!

    Remember this when Native Americans show up and your home and land is taken away and “given back” to them…they didn’t just up and leave either. Or whip out that checkbook for reparations to African -Americans sure as heck didn’t just up and leave either. Making sons pay for the father’s sin(s) Or is it Ok over there but NIMBY? Mrs obama and you may have a lot more in common,,shared assets for one…careful what you think you believe, Or just say might makes right…

    This was not about proving Faith. It was about proving that Israel has historical ties (millennia worth) to Jerusalem. That they belong there and not just some johnnie-come-latelies that the U.N. plopped into the region in the late 1940′s.

    The people of Palestine have those same feelings except why did they lost their homes that THEY never left for Europeans and Americans et al, to “return” to their “homeland” and throw out the people who have always lived there ? I think the argument is, I have always lived here and because someone’s great great grandson returns to the neighborhood I lose my home,my land ? Why do they have more legal,moral rights they the occupant ? I am not taking sides but I see a much stronger argument for the displaced homeowners.

    @dealer@678

    Take solace in every generation,including the 12, thought they were also…wrong for 2000 years and counting. We can’t stop Americans from killing other Americans..why on heaven OR earth would you even attempt to enforce your will on other nations when you can’t in your own nation? Currently the Muslims are insane,the Germans a few years before that,Japan to Korea, America to native Americans etc etc etc…names and dates change, the horrors remain. John of Patmos looked around and feared Nero would rise from the grave and kill Christians…he was wrong also.

  • [3] April 22, 2015 at 4:12pm

    Well historical events mentioned in the Bible and then those events corroborated by non biblical sources are some how then channeled into the entire Bible being true. That a city was destroyed or someone killed someone else is really sidebar stuff. If there a Supernatural being that created the universe and all of us and likes Jews better than non Jews? That falls back on belief.If I wrote that Glenn Beck is the anti Christ and also mention New Orleans flooded, JFK was shot in Dallas and 4 lads from England changed popular music…Beck still may not be the anti Christ…maybe. However, some,most of what I wrote was true..but the central point of Beck’s satanic roots would not be confirmed or refuted by other true statements. It’s a odd way of proving one’s belief via proving other things other than your belief. Remember anyone who denies the Christ is the anti Christ..and Jews deny the Christ..sooo how does one be chosen and deny the chooser ?..

    I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won’t get in our way. … They asked me before the election if I’d honor [the Oslo accords] … I said I would, but … I’m going to interpret the accords in such a way that would allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the ’67 borders. How did we do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were. Defined military zones are security zones; as far as I’m concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined military zone. Go argue.

    @Miami
    I could do with a thousand well trained men, no babysitters, no hands tied behind our backs & this would be done in under a year

    ..and how many years will you remain? It’s a to often stated phrase but won the war and lost the peace. I have no doubt a few thousand troops and fire power could kill or drive undercover the current crop. But this is thought that you are trying to control. After you won,the IEDs would start, small bands with car bombs etc etc…the body bags would pile up…for what? Better they kill us instead of each other? We need to stop thinking they are like us…they are not. So don’t apply our western moral outrage to todays victims who were yesterday killers. But I agree YES we could…but why bother? More killing isn’t the solution to more killing…stay out of the way might be. They really enjoy it or they would have stopped.

  • [1] April 22, 2015 at 11:47am

    “Maybe we don’t react to these things because we don’t think of the Greek Orthodox or the Coptic Christians — we don’t know what the Coptic thing is,” Beck said. “Because would we care if the victims were Methodist or Baptist or Catholic or Mormon? I guarantee you we would.”

    Maybe because they ALL have been killing each other for centuries. You just happen to be alive to see the latest. Odd you were so silent when Muslim were killing Muslims. The ten of thousands of Muslims killed must have missed your keen moral outrage. However if Glenn Beck has some master solution please tell us. You were sure the MB would rule Egypt, remember? Where was your concern when hundreds of MB were hung? Oh thats right,cool to kill them. At some point you reach that level of insanity when dealing with 13th century cultures with 21st century weapons. Would like our treasure and blood spent on them? Harsh language? What “side” side we support ? How about take over Jordan and declare it a Christian State, give them nuclear weapons and say they are our 2nd closest ally in the region.Or just leave..just leave. No one,Barry included, has been able to “solve” the ME problem, Islam vs Jew vs Arab vs Christian vs Muslim.

  • [1] April 21, 2015 at 7:37pm

    Interesting that ISIS, so far has avoided Jewish victim’s. They have killed many more Muslims than Christians.In other news,the MB President of Egypt is off to prison for 20 years and hundreds of MB have been executed. ISIS? a Mossad False Flag to drag us into the ME?

    @Rekhan007 -
    Let’s see, an 11 yr old family member is the basis for the probable cause you say right?
    How long do the police have to prevent the lawful owners of the property to enter lawfully until the police find a judge to issue a warrant based on a child not even in his/her teens?

    Think really hard..the term repeated over and over is “reasonable”. All review of the cops,Judges,DAs,is were their actions within law and if hitting the boundaries..was it reasonable? If you are really interested,see how much leeway a “bad” search seems to be allowed when the 3 murdered kids are found in the trunk absent a warrant ! Yet the “law” applies equally to a few ounces of a illegal substance or lbs of dead kids.So how long can you detain a citizen with dead kids in the trunk or prevent a citizen from entering their home/property while a warrant is secured? A reasonable length of time. If you don’t know what that means, that’s why you don’t get to decide.

    @2GodBeTheGlory -
    I noticed multiple omissions from your responses;

    No you didn’t “notice” anything.You take information and twist it to suit your view of things. Shooting officers on your property,while they are attempting to secure a warrant are not trespassing. Quite a paranoid little twit aren’t you? They “touched” their guns guns so you shot them? Dude the paranoid resin is ozzzing thru the few brain cells you have left.
    I don’t assume much from a Blaze article, unlike people who plan on killing folks as their
    imagination of their Nazi wet dreams come to life.A Judge reviewed the statements and found cause to issue the warrant. Warrants are tossed out in later proceedings every day. I know you read,all those people screaming about that SOB getting off on a “technicality” ? Officers,Judges make legal errors and the bad guy or innocent victim has LOTS of recourse. Unless he starts killing people..cause thats just border line insane.
    I can’t really have a serious discussion with a person who wants to kill LE who are following the 4th Amendment. I could explain it to you but I can’t understand it for you.
    Climb back in the bunker,”THEY”are coming for you NOW !!!!

    “This is a cut and dry case of suspicion of drugs…..”
    I wonder if the cops would behave this way if they had a reasonable suspicion that there were drugs in a town. Would they behave the same way and raid the entire town?

    No they would not. The 4th Amendment and case law is extremely specific in location and area to be searched. A judge would not issue a warrant to search every home, building, shed,unattached garage in Austin TX. You didn’t know that? For example,lets say this warrant was for the ” Two story yellow residence at 13 Elm Ln.” but they found the dope in a shed in the backyard? Illegal search and seizure..case closed unless the shed was specifically listed. ” Victims” lie, witnesses lie or are mistaken,cops over react and also lie and also make mistakes, judges don’t read the warrant application as closely as they should and really bad bad guys walk on a bad warrant.

    @watchingitall -Ap
    On what evidence, though. They can completely disrupt someone’s life on what evidence?

    The eyewitness testimony, in this case, that a resident of this home said drugs were currently in the home. This information was brought to law enforcement and following th 4th Amendment, did NOT kick down the door and illegally enter the home and seize property. Instead, they presented the testimony to a judge, officers had no independent knowledge or observations, and the JUDGE ordered the officers to enter the home and bring any contraband before the court. We are not arguing if marijuana should be legal
    or not,it is in this state. I think you miss the point,the warrant found what it was looking for..the witness statements appear to have been true..the warrant was based on correct information. Should warrants be based on statements that may not be confirmed until a warrant is executed? That’s why the cops need a warrant, hopefully,a 3rd independent party,the Judge,decides. Sometimes Judges deny warrants,tells the cops they need more…sometimes they have just enough..sometimes other Judges throw out the other Judges warrant and the seizure is not allowed to be introduced.
